Male Birthday

Well today is my favorite father-in-law's birthday. Oh wait...I guess I only have 1, so he is favorite by default...lol. Anyway...I needed to make a card for him. I decided to use the LO sketch from this week's Sweet Stop Sketch...and there is a twist this week. The twist is to make a masculine card. So that worked out perfect! Here is what I came up with. I started with the new SNSS digi stamp Mr. Fix-it. This is a cute digi image that includes a couple sentiments too. I didn't use the sentiments, but I did print them for future use. Next I colored the image with colored pencils and gamsol. I trimmed the image down, and layered onto the green CS. Then I added some grey/silver liquid pearl to the saw blade and hammer head. I love the look it gave the "metal" part of the tools. Next I layered onto the PP from Kaiserkraft that I picked up at my LSS specifically to use with this image. The nuts and bolts are on the one side, and the other side is ruler lines. I layered onto some green CS for the base. Last I added the rub-on sentiment. A perfect masculine card, don't' you think?
Well, I am off to my in-laws for a celebration later. Have a wonderful Sunday!

This card is for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge 109
